baby gifts

A relative of mine is having twins, a boy an a girl, so my mom and I sewed up some gifts for them.

First up is pee pee teepees or wee wee wigwams. It will come in handy with the baby boy. Tutorial here.

Next I made these bunny blankies one for each baby.  I used fleece on one side and cotton on the other. Tutorial here.

I made these two hats from some extra fleece my mom used making two baby blankets. Tutorial here.

I made two fabric books from panels I got at fabricland. The first one is for the girl and it is a safari theme.

The second one is for the boy and is a farm theme.

Me and my mom crocheted two sets of a hats, mitts and booties. My mom crocheted the blue set and I crocheted the greenish set. Tutorials: booties(there are seven parts to it), baby hat, I just kind of made the mitts like the booties except a different shape.

Last up is this playmat. I took four panels and sewed them together with binding.

I appliqued some fuzzy fabrics on the animals for feeling.

I also attached some toys in the center. The butterfly has beads in it for noise. the sun has part of a chip bag in it for noise. the other ones are flat.

Happy Crafting!
